Meet The Team

Ashley Royer '21

As a second year Orientation Leader (OL), Ashley Royer ’21 is excited to trade in her title for a new one: Administrative Orientation Leader (AOL). The elementary education and liberal studies major knew she wanted to be an OL during her own orientation. “I came to Emmanuel wanting to get involved with the community, and being an OL seemed like the perfect fit for me!” Ashley says.

Aside from being an OL, Ashley keeps herself busy with other cocurriculars like being Secretary of the Film and Book Club, a member of the service-oriented Saints Giving Back, and a peer tutor in the Academic Resource Center. One thing Ashley loves about Emmanuel is the strong community. She says that because of Emmanuel’s small size, “it creates a comfortable community” for every student. With a full year under her belt since becoming an OL, she says her favorite part of the job is getting to know the students individually beyond orientation. Ashley says, “Relationships with students continue after orientation and throughout the school year, so it’s great seeing them grow.”

We're Here to Help.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact the Orientation Hotline at 617-735-9817 or at

Other important dates and deadlines can be found here. If you haven't done so already, check out and join the official Emmanuel College Class of 2024 Facebook group.
